When I first started blogging almost 5 years ago, I used to do macro photography with extreme close-ups. I'm thinking to do more of these, I love all the textures, we can almost feel it!

Some comparable shades with my new Dusty rose from @anastasiabeverlyhills . My fave is still Lolita from @katvondbeauty , which is warmer and deeper. The only one that I am not a huge fan of is Patina from Stila that I find too pink on my skin tone.

Dusty Rose is my new go to. I like the fact that this is not too pink, it is the most neutral pink tone from @anastasiabeverlyhills @norvina liquid lipstick.

To conclude the #doubledare topic, here is the #everlastingliquidlipstick on my lips! 
In love with this shade, in LOVE! 

Kat Von D Double dare vs Lolita swatches

Here the swatch comparisons between Kat Von D beauty #lolita and #doubledare
Lolita has more brown in it, Double dare has more pink and red. Both are in my top 5!

Now this is the swatch for #doubledare from Kat Von D . I'll post a comparison swatches with Lolita later. 
They are two beautiful neutrals but Double Dare is more pink and vivid.

The best color ever! #doubledare from @katvondbeauty . 
It was very hard to put my hands on this one, because it was instantly sold out... 
This is a warm medium pink with some red in it. So wearable with a touch of color. This is the type of color that I love to wear to give some life to the look but this is not too colorful, not too blend.

I am in love with these Makeup geek brushes! If you have small Asian eyes or just small eyes or if you want more precision, these brushes are made for you! 
The four eye brushes on the left are amazing for my eyes and this pencil brush is the tiniest brush I have ever seen. 
The face brushes are great to control the application of your powders. As always, great quality and affordable. 
I highly recommend these little gems! 

Makeup Geek Haul

Friday, September 4, 2015

Some additions to my @makeupgeekcosmetics @makeupgeektv collection! I wanted to try their brushes as they are so small compared to the other brushes on the market. These are made for my small, tiny Asian eyes!!! And I needed to add #babyface, #showtime #foiledeyeshadow and #afterglow pigment... 

Liquid lipsticks comparisons ABH, Kat Von D, Stila, Dose of colors, Gerard cosmetics

Thursday, September 3, 2015

via Instagram http://ift.tt/1KKm2iX

For references, some quick swatches, these are some of my liquid lipsticks that people can see similar but NO, they are all different I swear!😂😋 
Veronica from Anastasia Beverly Hills is the darkest, so rich and deep, formula is great. 

Patina from Stila is more on the pink side. I find it too pink for my liking, I don't wear it too often because of it. 

Lolita everlasting liquid lipstick from Kat Von D beauty is my favorite shade because it is warmer, this is my lips but a bit darker shade, I LOVE it, my go to, perfect for any occasion. 

Serenity hydramatte from Gerard cosmetics is a toned down peachy pink, easy to wear, for me a super nude and the most hydrating among all of these lip products. 

Truffle from Dose of colors is darker than Serenity, more brownish, perfect for those who love a nice nudy pink brown.

Truffle from @doseofcolors , such a beautiful neutral pink , LOVE 😍😍😍 

Dose of colors Angelic lipstick

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

via Instagram http://ift.tt/1NWQ1oR

Angelic lipstick from @doseofcolors. This is my least favorite of my mini haul, not that I don't like this shade which is super pretty, but on me it's a duh, way too light! It's so hard to find the perfect match for nude lipsticks that is not too light or too pink or peach. It is super opaque and pigmented and also so creamy and moisturizing. I'll find a way to still use it, probably by mixing another shade or paired with a darker lip liner. BTW I am NC25 for reference. 

Foundation is @lorealpariscan @lorealparisofficial Infallible pro matte in 104. Contour is @katvondbeauty #shadeandlight. Highlight is @beccacosmetics #champagnepop. Blush is @sigmabeauty in Heavenly. Brows and eyes are @anastasiabeverlyhills @norvina #dipbrow pomade in Ebony and #shadowcouture palette, my favorite palette of all time (Bellini, Morocco, Fudge). Eyeliner is @katvondbeauty Tattoo liner in Trooper. Mascara @maybellinecan @maybelline lash sensational.

Truffle from @doseofcolors is for me the perfect neutral nude muted pink. It is not too pink, not too light, not too dark or brownish, just perfect!!! I 😍😍😍 it. I find the texture a bit drying, comparable to the Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipsticks. Foundation is @lorealpariscan @lorealparisofficial Infallible pro matte in 104. Contour is @katvondbeauty #shadeandlight. Highlight is @beccacosmetics #champagnepop. Blush is @sigmabeauty in Heavenly.

Rosé lipgloss from @doseofcolors . Details of the rest of the face on precious post. My new accessory...my hand. I am not too original for posing. The other angle of my face is so strange... 

Dose of colors Rosée lipgloss review ans try on

via Instagram http://ift.tt/1NMjC54

@doseofcolors Rosé lipgloss on the lips. I would describe this shade as a light medium pink with some purple lilac tone in it. It is opaque, we can't see my lip color under the product, what I like because I love pigmented lip products. I will post more close up pictures later and Truffle and Angelic. Rest of the makeup is my go to look. I use 80% of the time my #shadowcouturepalette from @anastasiabeverlyhills @norvina because this is the best palette ever! I used the @katvondbeauty #shadeandlight palette for contour and this is amazing too.

So here are the swatches of my lip products from @doseofcolors . I think that Truffle is my new favorite pinkish nude. That is it!

@doseofcolors Truffle and Rosé are totally my shades! Angelic is too pale for me but the texture is so creamy and beautiful and super opaque.
